VIEWING, CONSULTATION, REVIEW,
Within 15 calendar days from the disclosure of the results examinees may
request to view their tests. Assessment issues, rights infringement and
counting mistakes leading to false scores may be pointed out and a review
request filed. If requests are sent by post, the deadline refers to the date of
postage. To initiate such processes, the viewing and reviewing request forms
(see „documents” on our webpage) need to
be filled in, and in the case of a review request, the receipt of payment of
the reviewing fee need to be handed in, or sent by post or e-mail to the
Language Examination Centre. If you decide to send your request in a letter,
please send us the requests via e-mail, too. At the first level, your
request will be considered by the head of the Examination Centre in 15 days
after its arrival.
Viewing: Examinees have the right to view their written tests and
oral assessment sheets in the Examination Centre, free of charge. Tests may
only be viewed by examinees and their parents/legal guardians/representatives.
Viewing will take place in a room
with an invigilator, in the time span of a 45 minute fixed appointment session.
Examinees will be given their tests for viewing together with related answer
keys, assessment instructions and oral exam assessment sheets. To be able to
take notes, examinees will also get blank sheets with the Centre's seal, and a
pencil. While taking handwritten notes of parts of the written test is allowed,
image recording of any sort (e.g. photocopying, taking photos) is not, It is
also forbidden to copy full test items and any exam material by hand, word by
word. Before leaving, examinees have to show their notes to the invigilator for
control and signature.
: Examinees are also granted a
consultation session at request. As a consultation fee, the sum of the current
extra service fee is to be calculated – check the update on our website. At
consultation sessions examinees have the opportunity to ask an examiner,
appointed by the Language Examination Centre, to analyse their tests and point
out their most typical mistakes and shortcomings, and offer guidance for
further preparation. On all other
accounts the rules of viewing also apply to consultation sessions.
d) Review request
: Within 15 calendar days
the disclosure of the results, suspicion of assessment issues, rights
infringement and counting mistakes leading to false scores may be pointed out
and a review
request filed, either linked with a viewing request or
separately. According to the amendment of Govt. Decree No. 137/2008. (V.16.) in
effect from March 27, 2011, a review
request fee is to be charged,
amounting to 20% of the written examination
fee or 10% of the oral examination fee.
Requests without original or
digitalised payment receipts enclosed will be rejected. Missing the deadline
may be an other cause of a rejected request, and in all cases it's the
complainer's responsibility to track whether their requests have been delivered
to the Examination Centre.
The head of the Language Examination
Centre will bring a decision in 15 days from delivery, and inform the examinee
e) Appeal: No later than 15 days after the disclosure of the decision
in a reviewing case examinees may file an appeal, addressed to the Office of
Education with two copies sent to the Language Examination Centre, in which
they point out that their rights might have been infringed or that there might
have been errors in the calculation of their test scores. Filing such an appeal
has a fee of HUF 5.000, to be paid to the Office of Education (bank account No.
10032000-00282637-00000000 subject: „language examination appeal”). The
complaint will be investigated in keeping with sections 102-105. of Act
CXL/2004 on the general rules of municipal administrative procedures. If the complaints
are considered valid, the Language Examination Centre is obliged to issue the
language examination certificate in 15 calendar days from the disclosure of the
legally binding resolution.
